Opinion: I would recommend this.
Other Comments: This is my own wine. I dreamed it up. Wrote it into a thriller and it became real. From the Rutherford Bench and Stags Leap district with a combination of hillside and valley floor grapes. Blackberries and a hint of oil-cured olives. This is aging smoothly and gracefully. Has many years left. 182 cases made. I created this wine as the signature for a major character in my novel, Perfect Killer (http://lewisperdue.com/lewbooks.shtml#perfectkiller). The fictional wine became reality in 2005 with the help of gifted winemaker Charlie Tsegeletos. Find out more about this wine at http://xantaeus.com, and http://castellodavinci.com
